When you enter this zoo for the first time it does not look that much. However, take time to discover their hidden spaces and resting rooms. It's very well planned and meticulously organized. Excellent for the family with small kids. It is a rather small...More

Easy to access by train and just a few minutes walk away. Cheap entrance fee. Quite a big variety of animals and there was even a panda. A small amusement park with some simple rides was enough to keep my kids happy.
